A new specimen of Sinopterus dongi (Pterosauria, Tapejaridae) from the Jiufotang Formation (Early Cretaceous, China)

A new postcranial specimen, D3072, is presented, which is attributed to the type-species of the genus, Sinopterus dongi, which helps shed some new light in the osteology of Sinopteri complex, hopefully serving as a basis for future comparative studies involving further specimens and other proposed species and, subsequently, taxonomic revisions.

On the validity of the genus Amblydectes Hooley 1914 (Pterodactyloidea, Anhangueridae) and the presence of Tropeognathinae in the Cambridge Greensand.

The validity of Amblydectes crassidens is reassessed based on new anatomical comparisons and phylogenetic analysis, as well as the description of a new specimen, and it is confirmed as belonging to the clade Tropeognathinae, a recently proposed group of robust anhanguerids which have only been known so far from Gondwanan landmasses.

New azhdarchoid pterosaur (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) with an unusual lower jaw from the Portezuelo Formation (Upper Cretaceous), Neuquén Group, Patagonia, Argentina.

It is advocated here that Argentinadraco barrealensis might have used the lower jaw to obtain its prey by cutting or ploughing through unconsolidated sediment in shallow waters, a feeding behavior not previously proposed for pterosaurs.

A new azhdarchid pterosaur is described, Alanqa saharica nov. sp.

A new unusual tapejarid pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous Romualdo Formation (Araripe Basin, Brazil) is described, based on a skull, lower jaw and some postcranial elements, demonstrating that the evolution of palatal region in pterosaurs is more complex than previously thought.

A NEW AZHDARCHOID PTEROSAUR FROM THE CRATO FORMATION (LOWER CRETACEOUS, APTIAN?) OF BRAZIL

A partial pterosaur skull from the Nova Olinda Member of the Crato Formation represents a new edentulous pterodactyloid, Lacusovagus, which shares a shallow, crestless rostrum and a slender posterodorsal premaxillary extension with Jiufotang Forma- tion azhdarchoids such as Chaoyangopterus and Jidapters.

A Basal Tapejarine (Pterosauria; Pterodactyloidea; Tapejaridae) from the Crato Formation, Early Cretaceous of Brazil

A three-dimensional and almost complete pterosaur mandible from the Crato Formation, Araripe Basin, is described as a new species of a tapejarine tapejarid, demonstrating how their morphological traits probably evolved and that these forms were even more diverse than already acknowledged.

New pterosaur material from the Upper Jurassic of Tendaguru (Tanzania), Africa

The pterosaur fossil record from Africa is exceedingly scarce and one of the least known for any continental land mass. The specimens here described are housed at the Naturkundemuseum of the Humboldt

CRANIAL CREST DEVELOPMENT IN THE AZHDARCHOID PTEROSAUR TUPUXUARA, WITH A REVIEW OF THE GENUS AND TAPEJARID MONOPHYLY

A portion of pterosaur skull from the Romualdo Member of the Santana Formation of north‐east Brazil provides new data on the morphology and ontogeny of azhdarchoid pterOSaur cranial crests, suggesting that the generation of the premaxillary crest is a late ontogenetic feature and thus probably related to sexual display.

A new azhdarchid pterosaur from the Late Cretaceous phosphates of Morocco

Abstract A large azhdarchid pterosaur is described from the Late Maastrichtian phosphatic deposits of the Oulad Abdoun Basin, near Khouribga (central Morocco). The material consists of five closely

ABSTRACT A series of pterosaur bones from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) of Velaux (Bouches-du-Rhône, southeastern France) is described. This material, including both cranial and postcranial

New information on the Tapejaridae (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) and discussion of the relationships of this clade

Abstract. A phylogenetic analysis indicates that the Tapejaridae is a monophyletic group of pterodactyloid pterosaurs, diagnosed by the following synapomorphies: premaxillary sagittal crest that
